In this move, the director has used Slow motion cleverly to extend a mere 30 minutes runtime story to 2 hours. Slow motion scenes are added to almost all the scenes, putting the viewer in a journey to slow death. The experience of watching this movie is reflected in the lyrics of one of the songs in the movie "Pettupokumo". The lyrics of the song "Ithra peedakal sahichu talli neekuvanikku pattukillini ithenthu kashtamanu bro (Brother, I cannot push this difficult time forward going through these hardships...)" accurately describes the feelings and thoughts of a viewer of this movie.


It’s a story woven around 3 youngsters and their search for new life in Cochin city, they are from different places. Ashik (Asif Ali), Sidharth (Unni Mukundan) and Vijay (Vinay Forrt) stay together in a house of an old man named Scobo Jones (Nedumudi Venu) for free by solving a puzzle. Jones teaches them there are two ways to approach a problem in life and that often only one path that too with repetitive effort will turn struggling events into unexpected bliss form the plot of the movie.
